Himalaya Part II – Faraway, So Close!

Tag 4 – Time to say farewell: from Tadapani (2647m) to Chomrong (2130m) I already had to say goodbye to Andrea and Babu, the night before. Those two had to start their trek before sunrise, to be able to reach Kathmandu on the same day. Of course, Andrea didn’t walk away without leaving a farewell. […]

Himalaya Part I – Stair Run Is Not Always Fun

The Himalaya-Poon Hill-Panorama-View Let’s plunge in the Alpine World There was not much time to acclimatize to the “real” world after the “monastery week”. I had to go to the office of the travel agency the day I returned to Thamel to organize the last details of my tour. The next morning, Kumar, my guide for […]

Peaceful Silence

Arrival in Kathmandu – Little Delhi?! Optimistically I headed off to my last stop Nepal, country No.24. I should finally be a bit more quiet and peaceful. But if you search for a more relaxed environment, the capital Kathmandu, especially the tourist area Thamel, is not really the right place. Hectic life and traffic jams are on […]

Welcome to real India, bro!

From the Wonder of the World to the Capital New Wonder of the World number 5 was done. There was not much more to do in Agra. I moved on the 300km to the capital. Delhi is with more than 25million inhabitants the third biggest metropolitan area in the world. This city burst at the […]

Jodhpur – desert heat at the Fort Sol and I went the approx. 3h from Udaipur to Jodhpur by minivan. Including a TV, where they showed the new Bollywood Blockbuster “Sultan” (must have been an illegal copy). What a movie! 😀 An Indian wrestler wins a Olympic gold medal, wins the heart of his goddess […]

On my […]

Shirley’s Angels Last Days in Vietnam

Castaway in Ha Long Bay Zum Morgengrauen brachen wir auf nach Ha Long Bay auf die private Castaway-Insel vom Vietnam Backpacker Hostel. 3 Tage/2 Nächte vor der Traumkulisse des Weltkulturerbes. Nur ein paar Hütten, Strand und Meer, eingerahmt von einer Felsenlandschaft. Und in diesem, unserem Fall, jede Menge Alkohol. Der Großteil der knapp 100 Inselbewohner schien […]

Russian-Stronghold and Lantern Festival in Hoi An After the days in Dalats mountains and a short intermezzo at the Russian hotspot Nha Trang, the Mui Ne-pack got reunited in Hoi An. Meanwhile, the group was even bigger. 3 nights later all the 12 of us drove together to Hue with the motorbike. Only James from […]

Good Morning Vietnam

Arrival in Ho-Chi-Minh-City I continued my travel towards East from Cambodia to Vietnam. With my 4 week visa in my passport, the first stop was Ho-chi-Minh-City, better known as Saigon. Like in Cambodia, I got shown the cruel past of this war-torn country. I visited the Independent Palace and the war museum, where they present (naturally from a subjective […]
